It is a small monastery, renovated after the Chinese Culture Revolution (during the 1970s). There is a flood land and some red reeds in front of the Monastery. Near the Monastery is the beautiful Kejia Village, which look like a haven of peace and happiness.
Kejia Monastery means “settlement” in Tibetan language. It is not clear when the monastery was built. It is said that the residents living around Gar (near the present Shiquanhe Town) were good at building Buddhist statues. One day they finished founding a statue of Kwan-yin (Mother Buddha) and were delivering it to another place. When they passed the Peacock River (the river in front of the Monastery), the carriage was stuck by a rock. Na matter how hard they tried, they couldn’t move the stone and thus they couldn’t go on their journey. Finally they stopped at the place and built a monastery there and named it Kejia Monastery.
